August 24, 2015 - Leviton recently announced the free integration of Omni security & automation control systems into BitWise BC1, BC2 and BC4 audio/visual control systems. This allows BitWise customers to create custom interfaces for their OmniTouch 7 touchscreens, utilizing new graphical elements such as icons and backgrounds for free.
June 25, 2015 - Legrand has introduced Intuity, a new home automation platform that gives production homebuilders and installers serving the mainstream housing market a “modular, and repeatable solution for controlling entertainment, security, and comfort within a home.”
June 15, 2014 - At the 5th edition of Futur en Seine, Legrand presented a family of conceptual products that create “a new relationship between home controls and end users, and offers a simple and intuitive experience through gentle gestures”.
July 18, 2012 - GE released the Multilin EPM 6010, a power meter that can communicate using both BACnet/IP and Modbus TCP protocols. GE says the EPM 6010 provides accurate and timely energy use data, allowing a building automation system (BAS) to better respond to changes in demand. The meter gives building management systems access to 40 predefined BACnet objects, which allows the meter to integrate into the automation system. In addition to BACnet, the meter’s web interface allows users to track energy usage remotely with a standard browser, and the Modbus TCP interface permits interoperability with HMI software such as Multilin EnerVista Viewpoint Monitoring. The EPM 6010 provides true RMS multifunction measurements, including voltage, current, power, frequency and 0.2% energy accuracy in compliance with modern IEC and ANSI accuracy standards.
April 10, 2012 - GE has added the Whole-Home Sensor to its suite of Brillion home energy solutions which, according to the company, provides continuous energy consumption data without needing a smart meter. The sensor sends consumption data from large 240-volt applications, such as a panel box or pool pump, to the home’s Nucleus energy manager, which then communicates that data to a consumer’s existing smartphones or personal computers. The company has also added smart-plug controls, which enable consumers to track electrical usage by the outlet for most 120-volt appliances and devices, and Brillion-enabled thermostats.GE APPLIANCES
October 24, 2011 - Encelium Technologies has introduced its new family of low-voltage occupancy sensors, which includes a full range of passive infrared (PIR) and dual technology (Ultrasonic/PIR) low-voltage sensors available in both wall mount and ceiling mount configurations. The company describes the sensors as ideal for use with Encelium’s Energy Control System and also for stand-alone sensor applications.ENCELIUM TECHNOLOGIES
October 8, 2011 - HBA unveiled its wiHUBB wireless distributed lighting control system for both indoor and outdoor lighting applications. wiHUBB’s In-Fixture Module provides On/Off, High/Low and 0-10vDC full-range dimming control for all lighting loads. The wiHUBB On-Fixture Module is suitable for adding wireless On/Off and daylight harvesting control to outdoor fixtures that have a standard twist-lock photo-sensor receptacle. Meantime, the wiHUBB Smart Pack provides On/Off, High/Low and 0-10vDC full-range dimming control, and features SmartPORTs for plug-n-play support of wiHUBB occupancy and daylight sensors, and manual control switches. When devices are plugged into the SmartPORTs, the Smart Pack automatically responds to the plugged-in devices to provide energy-efficient operation.HUBBELL BUILDING AUTOMATION
October 8, 2011 - Hubbell Building Automation says its CX commercial lighting control panels provide “feature-rich and cost-effective lighting control for maximum energy savings”. The LCD user interface is located in the door and employs intuitive menus to program, check status or update the panel. The pre-programmed Scenarios menu simplifies project commissioning. The panels are available in 4- and 8-relay sizes with five types of relays. Programming capabilities include 365-day programming with 64 schedules, 32 groups, 99 holidays, astronomical and real-time clocks. Programmable inputs accept low-voltage switches, photocells or motion sensors. The CX panels are listed to UL 916, cUL and have a 2-year warranty.HUBBELL BUILDING AUTOMATION
October 7, 2011 - Wieland Electric Inc., a manufacturer of pluggable connection technology for building automation and automation technology, introduced its pluggable printed circuit board (PCB) terminals. The 3.5-mm pitch, high-density PCB connector maintaining a pitch that is easy to work with, insists the company; the angled PCB headers are particularly designed for contacting automation technology control devices or controllers. The two- and three-tier headers are available in 2-pole to 16-pole designs per tier, in straight or angled versions, with or without latching flanges for mating connectors. The three-tier version, wiecon 8513 SDGN, features a maximum of 48 poles for the connection of 1.5-mm2 wires. The two-tier terminal blocks, wiecon 8513 SEGN, provide up to 32 poles. The wiecon 8513 BS mating plug connectors are equipped with push-in technology for quick wiring without tools.WIELAND ELECTRIC
